Gabriele Oßwald and Wolfgang Sautermeister are two older performance artists, founders and former heads of the artist venue zeitraumexit in Mannheim. Two years ago, they asked Doris Uhlich if she would be interested in an artistic collaboration: ›A dance piece with you as a choreographer is one dream we still have.‹ The result is ›stuck‹—a movement research piece dedicated to the limits and the waning of movement that searches for an ›immobile dance.‹ What does dance beyond the expectations of movement, continuity and action look like? ›stuck‹ plunges the notion of dance as action into a crisis and visualizes the dynamics of motionlessness and not making headway. Doris Uhlich opens up a choreographic space in which experiences of loss, feelings of helplessness and melancholy affects are explored.
